Sci-Fi Houses You'd Want To Live In
The finest in movie real estate

submit to reddit

House-hunting can be hellish, with its gazumping, conveyancing and endless euphemisms for the word ‘pokey’. But somehow down the years the protagonists in some of our favourite sci-fi movies have managed to lay their futuristic hands on a portfolio of prime real estate. Should any of these properties come onto the market, the punters will all be rushing for their mortgage broker, so we’ve got our Kirstie-and-Phil on to explore the best in intergalactic des res.

Lars Farmstead, Tatooine
200,000 Galactic Credits

To the untrained eye, this is a nondescript moisture farm on a barren stretch of Tatooine. But to the savvy, it’s a blue riband investment that’s all sizzle - especially during the scorchy summer months. Handily placed for the Jundland Wastes, and with Jabba’s Palace a mere land-speeder ride away, there are plenty of good reasons to stay home. And what a home! The ultimate in subterranean chic, there’s nowhere better to welcome passing Jawa traders.

As seen in: Star Wars: A New Hope

Features

  • Moisture vaporators
  • Womp rat shooting range
  • Ample speeder parking
  • Twin sun-lounging deck

OK, you might have left Wayne Manor off the list to avoid the whole is-it-or-isn't-it-sci-fi debate, but to omit Tony Stark's Malibu home is criminal. More

3 What about Jerome's place?
Jerome Morrow's(Jude Law) apartment in Gattaca is the ultimate bachelor pad (for wooing Uma Thurman, even if you have no legs). More

5 One for the fact fans
If you think the view of night-time San Francisco is a little familiar, James T Kirk's apartment used the same backcloth as was used in The Towering Inferno from the Promenade Room. More

Deckard's apartment is so out of time, combining old and futuristic. Looks comfortable and lived in too. Yeah, I guess I would have wanted to live there. Cool article, Empire. More
